Cleansing the intestine with warm boiled water before the operation

Cleanse the body with warm boiled water before the operation on the abdominal cavity. A patient may need a cleansing of the bowel. That would help the surgeon operate the pathological site in more comfortable conditions, as well as to prevent infection. Some food remains on the walls of the intestines during digestion, causing “slagging” of the body. Therefore, there are several ways of cleansing the bowel before the operation.

Besides, before the operation, you need to consult with your doctor about the choice of the method of purification. However, do not forget about contraindications. Enemas or laxatives are quite general. The diet plays an essential role on the eve of surgery, and the food should be “slagless.” Twelve hours before the operation, you should not eat, so the stomach and the intestines should be empty.

Laxatives used to cleanse before surgery

Cleansing the intestine before the operation can be carried out by an enema with warm boiled water. The liquid enters the lower part of the large intestine to release the stool.

The mechanisms of their action may vary causing either increased peristalsis or dilution of stool. The use of laxatives is safe and effective, but the attending physician should only determine the dosage.

Holistic and professional methods of cleansing the intestine before the operation

You can cleanse the body with holistic approaches.

  • We are cleansing the intestines with saltwater.
  • Following this method, you need to drink about 12 glasses of salted water for 1-1.5 hours. Add sea or table salt (1 teaspoon per litre) to warm boiled water. Early morning on an empty stomach is the best time for the procedure. Between the water intake, it is helpful to do exercises for better passage of water through the intestines. You can perform slopes, body twists, squats.
  • To cleanse the body, you can prepare a water tincture of ashberry. Mash and stir one tablespoon of berries in a glass of boiled water. Allow to brew for about 10 hours and take during the day.
